Telos

What does Telos mean?

Telos has its root in the Greek word tetelestai. Telos means to end; to bring to completion; to bring to a conclusion; to complete; to accomplish; to fulfill or to finish.

It is finished.

"Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit"

Telos.  It is finished.

Amen.
